FAMAS F1 (the older version, the new onle looks too spacey and round) mmmmm....... what a sweet looking gun!

Sorry to hear my 3 calibur UZI isn't exotic enough but to play the game I am sure I could afford to feed a 249 SAW. Seen em work and have shot them, all I would need

An M16A1, the original design. I don't like the new stuff. Or an M2 Carbine...maybe both.

Alrighty then, My choice would be a: M82A1 50cal. /w a 10x Unertal Scope & 6 Mags. or an Original M1903A1 Sniper Rifle from WWI or WWII

in the FA range it would have to be an MP-5/10mm there just to cool
"Slayer"= Savage M110 FP Tactical 300WinMag "Accutrigger" /w Ultimate Sniper Stock, Leupold MK4 3.5x10 Mil-Dot Scope in Farrell Mount & Rings, Harris Bi-Pod. just up-Graded Scope

I'm not much into fantasy ... or Class III ...

But if I won, I think I'd go with old British Sterling SMG ... unless I could find an Owen gun, of course.

Short of that, I guess I'd be happy with a HK MP-5K or something in the SIG 550 series.

Got another one....

I'll take a custom bolt rifle, built on a Stolle action, Kreiger heavy barrel, Jewell trigger on a McMillan stock, chambered in 6.5-06 Improved (40 degree shoulder), with either a Nightforce 8-32x56 NXS scope, a Leupold 6.5-20, or perhaps a good Schmidt und Bender 6.5-20.

(yum, yum, yum! Little tiny groups at absurdly long ranges..... )

[quoteAn M16A1, the original design. I don't like the new stuff. ]Or an M2 Carbine...maybe both.[/quote]M2? Don't bother! It's just not that much fun.

Sad thing is, NFA legal MGs and SMGs are all 1986 or earlier technology. There isn't much in the way of "new stuff" available.

If ammo was covered in the cost as well, I'd say Ma Deuce.

Barring that, I've enjoyed shooting an M-60 at cross-canyon ranges, which is fun. But the ammo's expensive there, too, isn't it?

Hm. Looks like we're down to SMGs. I sure have appreciated the quality of a HK subgun like an MP-5 with a can on it (do I get the can in the deal?). Sadly, I don't think any of the 10mms were made early enough. The plethora of uppers available for M-16s may just win the day, the more I think about it. Maybe an Armalite in .308, so that I could get the conversion kits to .243 and other fun small stuff. (Shrug) It's a fun game to play, isn't it?

Boy, I guess I really am an old fart. With all the fancy newer gizmos out there being mentioned, I still opt for a vintage, venerable, WWII era Thompson SMG. That was my prefered carry in the service while most other guys fought over the then "new" M-16's. I'd love to have one today .

Choices, choices, choices.

Since he did say readily available ammo, I'd have to go with a Thompson. Got to run a couple of 30 round mags through one once, and it was a blast. Would love to be able to cut loose with a full drum now and then. Course, the barrel does tend to want to walk a bit, but with enough practice, who knows? I might be able to keep most on target. Even for a first timer I still kept 94% on the paper.

I like historical peices. My list includes a PPSH, MP41, BAR, Bergmann MP28, MAT 49, Bren, and of course the ultimate is a Model 1928 Thompson Submachinegun with the 50 round drum magazine. On the more modern side, I'm kind of partial to the .308 version of the Galil, AKS74U, and the Skorpion.

The choice would be easy for me: A brand new, still-in-the-cosmoline WWII era Thompson submachine gun. Ammo is cheap, the weapon is still one of the finest SMGs ever made, and they are terrifically fun to shoot.

my favorite auto

is the colt comando. my papa has one and shooting it is like driving an expensive luxury car. it has a pneumatic buffer spring and the trigger is verry short. and with good ol cheap 9mm you cant go wrong
in a world of compromise... some don't

Heckler & Koch MP5 in either 10mm or 9mm + Silenced.

The MP5 would be my new trunk gun and would go with me everywhere.

Maybe if I could get a sidearm with it I would get a Glock 18. That would be the ultimate as a CCW piece.

I would without a doubt pick one of two guns.....

Either a latest edition .50 BMG with tripod.....


ANY model M-60, E-1, E-2, E-3, E-4 though I would prefer the M-60 E-4.

Gotta go with the STG44.

Yeah, I know 7.92x33mm is a bit pricey but if I can afford the rifle I'm not going to be too worried about ammo costs.

I'd have to go with a 1921 Thompson with the horizontal foregrip and the Cutts compensator. Don't know if you can wear a tommygun out-built (and weigh) like a tank!
